Nothing in this life is permanent, and our strength is constantly being tested by trials. Yet Allah is there for us when we need Him: our prayers to Him help us see that life is an awesome gift. This book’s verses ponder the difficulties of life and how we can accept them through faith. They mingle sincere personal reflection with an awareness of the simplicity and beauty of a life lived well. “The sincerity in the writing is not a dead weight of seriousness, but is the life behind the poems. Jo Shan has presented a personal view on her faith that is quite interesting in a world where others often have very simplified views of Islam.” Stiofán Ó Maoilbhreannain, Editor, Occam’s Eraser, Dublin, Ireland POEMS are short phrases but contain powerful messages. Those who write them should know and those who read them could feel. Jo Shan shares her thoughts about what it is to OVERCOME, ACCEPT, REFLECT, ENCOURAGE, and EULOGIZE on the challenges of becoming a Muslim, especially for someone like her who meets Islam and thereafter decided to embrace it as her life’s destiny. Her collection of poems, penned under the title BLESSINGS BEHIND LIFE’S TRIALS bears testimony to her journey in discovering how Islam makes all the sense to her in her human meaning and becoming. Yamin Cheng, Lecturer in Usuluddin and Comparative Religion, International Islamic University Malaysia, Malaysia Seeking success for the next world as a believer in this world is a constant struggle fraught with seemingly endless tribulations. Sister Jo Shan’s evocative poetry brings words of peace and comfort in this tumultuous world and reminds us that the struggle may be hard, but the guidance and strength of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala is there for us. In poems such as Imperfection and Ring the Changes, she meets the challenges of the world (dunya) and casts them back, reminding us of their ephemeral nature. She brings us back to the ultimate meaning of our struggle. In poems such as Love in Life and Life Mark, she reminds of the many blessings we already receive from the Almighty. These blessings are at times too easily dismissed in a hectic world, but Sister Jo Shan’s poems cry out to us not let go of the many generous gifts that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has graciously bestowed upon us all. This anthology will gladden your heart and speak to you of the peace and solace that await, Insha’Allah.

There are many devotional books available containing brief, daily inspirations that benefit all who read them. This book is different in two respects. The first is obvious: it contains two readings per day—732 in all. The second, more important difference is that the author wanted to do more than offer inspiration; this would make this book no different than so many others. The messages in the book are study sketches in that the content is not only inspirational, but also educational, challenging, and encouraging. Most of these writings were based on author Michael J. Akers’s teaching of adult Bible studies for more than thirty years and learning what really brought adults to want to deepen their knowledge and application of the Word of God.

Bad things happen to all people but we often ask why good people suffer and the wicked prosper. This is a very complex subject to which Ady tries to give some clarity. In this book "Through Trials To Triumph" he discusses the issue from a Biblical perspective and helps the reader to understand why trials happen to all of us. This book shows that life is a journey full of ups and downs. What we often perceive as a bad situation can be an opportunity for change and growth, but the key is "attitude and faith." How people deal with life's trials depends on what attitude they have. God does not cause bad things to happen to us, but he allows them in our lives, and stands ready to help us through difficult times.

“God, how did I get in this mess!?” Is that the cry of your heart? You may be in the midst of an emotional hurricane right now and wondering Can anything good come out of this situation? Or you may be stumbling through the aftermath of a physical or financial crisis, fearful that you’ll never get back on your feet. In How to Let God Solve Your Problems, Dr. Charles Stanley demonstrates how God allows times of trial for a number of reasons: To turn your attention back toward Him. To adjust your priorities. To purify and prepare you for greater service. To better form you into His image. To grant you the experience of His comfort. Whether your hardship is the result of sin, unwise choices, or simply the consequence of living in a fallen world, God still has a plan for your life. He is aware of your circumstances, He has not forgotten His promises, and He will guide you through your difficulty to victory!

Rethinking Risk and the Precautionary Principle challenges the claim that the precautionary principle is an appropriate guide to public policy decision-making in the face of uncertainty. The precautionary principle is frequently invoked as a justification for regulating human activities. From bans on the use of growth hormones in cattle to restrictions on children's playground activities, precautionary thinking seems to be taking over our lives. As the contributors to this book show, such an approach is of dubious utility and may even be counterproductive. This is a timely and important contribution to the debate on how to manage risk in the modern world. The editor, Julian Morris, is Director of the Environment and Technology Programme at the Institute of Economic Affairs in London. He has written widely on issues relating to environmental protection and technological development. Up to date discussion of current issues and scientific controversies Challenges the claim that the 'precautionary principle' is an appropriate guide to public policy decisions

The author spent over forty years working in the health care industry, gaining fi rsthand knowledge about the interworkings of the various industries that represent the whole. After graduating from the University of Texas Pharmacy School in 1959, Fritz worked in retail pharmacies for about twenty years and as an owner for fi fteen of those years. During this time, valuable experience was gained while working with doctors, drug-company representatives, nursing homes, health insurance companies, and the consuming publichis customers. After selling his retail pharmacy, more experiences were gained selling pharmacy computer systems to retail pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, and institutional pharmacies. Additional experiences came from working as a business broker listing and selling retail pharmacies. Beginning about 1969, the whole health care industry evolved from a free enterprise environment to one controlled by health insurance companies, drug manufacturers, litigious lawyers, and government-entitlement programs. After many years of witnessing the demise of the health care industry and building frustration over the absence of truth emanating from the talking heads representing all forms of our news media and politicians, he wrote is fi rst book, Health Care: It Can Be Fixed. There is not a more qualifi ed spokesman, nor a better friend, to health care than Fritz. He is no longer active in the industry, so he is absolutely free to speak the truth and help people understand where better health comes from. In addition to writing about health care, he is also a public speaker and a consultant to businesses and corporations.

Where’s My Miracle? What to do when God doesn’t heal you Nothing can describe the horror of hearing doctors say, "You will never walk or use your hands again.” Or — "You have cancer. I’m afraid it’s terminal.” Like many people, you look to the Lord and pray for healing. You have friends and the pastor pray for you, but nothing happens. You read Scripture and claim the promises. You even have someone anoint you with oil or go to a healing crusade. But God doesn’t give you your miracle. You confess every possible sin and search your heart for any unconfessed sin. Your faith is strong and you tell everyone you will be healed, yet nothing seems to happen. You feel that God is playing a cruel joke or start to blame yourself for a lack of faith. And that’s a shame when Christians feel that way... The truth is that God certainly can heal and sometimes does heal people in a miraculous way. But the Bible does not teach that he will always heal those who come to him in faith. The big question is: What does the Bible REALLY teach about healing? The key is to understand God’s ultimate goal for your life. You need to— •Find joy in knowing God’s priorities for your life. •Know the comfort of the biblical promises. •Enthusiastically embrace God’s will for your life. You can find the joy of serving God despite unanswered prayer in this ebook. In just 30 minutes or less, you will unlock the door to a new attitude toward life. The topic of unanswered prayer is an issue that author, Joni Eareckson Tada, can speak to personally: A diving accident in 1967, when she was 17, left her a quadriplegic. She has lived 45 years in a wheelchair and she has experienced her share of ups and downs. "But,” she says, "oh, the difference the grace of God has made in my life.” Let Joni tell you her secrets to peace and joy, despite her wheelchair. She has spent decades studying the Word of God. She knows that God does not enjoy seeing your pain and frustration. He has compassion for you and gives you many ways to deal with life so that you can have peace. She has taken her most important insights on turning unanswered prayer into a life of joy (not anxiety) and has encapsulated them into this ebook. Whether you or a loved one is suffering. This ebook will bring you some help to break free from the strangle hold of fear and worry when God doesn’t seem to answer. In this ebook, you will find hope. Joni tells her story of facing the news of being paralyzed the rest of her life. Joni shows you the right way and the wrong way of coming to the Lord for healing. She tells how she dealt with unanswered prayer and passes her tips onto others. You can find freedom from wondering if God is rejecting you. Joni has been there and she shows you the way to peace and joy using biblical principles. About the Author Joni Eareckson Tada offers hope to people struggling with health and emotional challenges. After a 1967 diving accident left Joni Eareckson Tada a spinal cord-injured quadriplegic, she embarked on a lifelong study to make sense of suffering from God’s perspective. Joni Eareckson Tada is now an international advocate for individuals with disabilities, and the founder of the non-profit organization, Joni & Friends. Study Questions: •Read panels 1-2. Joni tells her own story of being paralyzed and praying for healing without success. She offers several insights as to why God might not heal a broken body or a broken marriage when we pray. Which of these insights speak to you? •Read panels 3-4. Why is it important to have a biblical view of the Kingdom of God and the kingdom view toward healing? If Jesus taught that the Kingdom of God is now at hand, why doesn’t that mean healing for everyone right now? What are some reasons that God might not heal a person? •Read panel 5-7. Joni discusses several claims that people make that she believes are not biblical. Do you agree? Look at the verses on page 6. These appear to be absolute promises, but are they? What do you believe about these verses and why? Why is it important to pray, "If it be thy will”? •Read panels 8-9. How could it be God’s will to deny a Christian’s request for healing? What good can come out of suffering emotionally and/or physically? What does it mean to pray in Jesus’ name? What do we learn about becoming more like Christ? •Read panels 10-11. What are God’s true priorities? What, in your opinion, is true wholeness? •Read panels 12-13. What will happen at the end of the age? Joni says, "I have discovered that there are more important things in life than walking.” What would you say is the most important thing God is doing through your life? How is it possible to give thanks in all circumstance, even in the midst of heart breaking physical or emotional pain?

Is fear causing you to lose sleep, stress out, or worry? Joni Eareckson Tada sheds light on the bondage of fear in her BRAND NEW ebook. Breaking the Bonds of Fear is about an unhealthy fear of man that a lot of Christians live their whole lives with. Joni explains that our aim is to decrease our sinful fear of man, and increase our reverent fear of the Lord. We can develop a fear of the Lord by trusting in Him and reading the Bible. There might be times in your life where you're not sure if God really cares about your circumstances or realizes the state you're in, but taking a look at specific stories in the Bible will help you see God's bigger picture. God wants you to trust in him, and when you read this ebook, you will clearly see how much God cares for you. Joni also talks about the fear that was generated from her tragic diving accident, and the steps that were taken to grow confidence in the Lord after her tragic accident that left her quadriplegic. Even death is not something to fear, when our trust rests in the only one who conquered death! Let Jesus be the ballast of your ship, for it is only then that you will find peace and restoration from fear.
